    I live in the UK, getting the same product from the us store cost $800 more in the uk one.
    Is there any problem whether its the laptop itself or the applecare plan if i buy it from the US then ship it to the Uk? Will applecare fix everything in Uk? Please answer.

    not 100% sure, but I figure might be worth noting that the voltages are different. Im from the UK, live in the US and I had to buy an adaptor that changes the voltage (I think) as well as changes the plug to use my laptop in England. My MBP definitely ran hot, but other than that it wasnt an issue, although this was only for 10 days or so.

    edit -

    you might also get hit with import duties unless you have someone bring it back for you. If you go this route, dont just have them bring it back in the box, looking like you just picked it up from the store. ;)
